If you’re looking to upgrade your phone this Black Friday, then there are some genuinely decent deals floating around.
The best deal that Walmart is offering right now is a $400 gift card with the purchase of an iPhone 8, 8+ or iPhone X. But that also comes with a 24-month Verizon, Sprint or AT&T contract, which is something you should avoid if possible.
For the latest Samsung and Apple phones – the iPhone XS or Galaxy Note 9/S9, Walmart is giving away a $300 gift card – also with a 24-month Verizon, Sprint or AT&T contract.
That, unfortunately, as good as it gets with Walmart’s Black Friday phone deals for the top tier range. If you don’t want to be tied down by a long contract – and you’re happy with an older model – then there are some good unlocked devices on sale.
The iPhone 6S Plus is $299, and you can pick up some older devices for under $100. Such as Apple’s iPhone 6, which Walmart is selling for $99 prepaid. That’s a $50 discount (ignore the crossed $399 former price tag).
It is frankly, not a great showing from Walmart. Its gift card deal is the best of the retailers, but the biggest actual money off deals are elsewhere.
